The Garden in Every Sense and Season

By Tovah Martin

Photographs by Kindra Clineff

Reminds us that the best way to get to know a garden is through our senses.


So much of gardening is focused on the long list of chores—the weeding, the planting, and the pruning. But what about the joy a garden can provide? In The Garden in Every Sense and Season, Tovah Martin mindfully explores the sensory delights in her own garden and discovers the pleasures that can be found in focusing on sight, smell, sound, touch, and taste. In 100 evocative essays, Martin shares sage garden advice, offers intimate reflections on her own garden, and urges gardeners to inhale, savor, and become more attuned to their gardens. Packed with lush color photographs, The Garden in Every Sense and Season will help gardeners grow a bounty of gratitude.
